Oxidative stress is a key mediator/trigger of organ impairment and injury during the progression of disease states. In the heart, oxidative stress plays a major role in the pathogenesis of various pathologic conditions such as coronary artery and valve diseases, cardiac infarction, and remodelling to heart failure. Oxidative stress may also occur during therapeutic interventions including open heart surgery and percutaneous coronary interventions. The deleterious effects on cardiomyocytes are largely due to opening of the mitochondrial permeability transition pore triggered by calcium loading and oxidiative stress. Understanding triggers and mediators of reactive oxygen species in diseased hearts and during treatement will help in identifying targets for therpeutic interventions.
As guest editors, we invite you to contribute to this Special Issue, whose focus will be the role of oxidative stress in cardiac disease progression and during therpeutic interventions.
